|One of my fav costumes, this was my obsession for 6 months making sure i got EVERYTHING right, which was hard back then without screengrabs or dvds!|
Made from synth leather(for budget reasons), with real metal studs, top built around a wonder bra (as all good xena costumes were!) aluminium chain mail, handpainted detailing on leatherette, handmade sword and dagger to replicate original. Boots were the only bought piece. Also dyed hair to match and wore contacts!
I also perfected the character's scream and matched Hudson Leik in a scream contest at a photo shoot! She was most pleased!
First prize at Wolf Crusade Convention 2000, noted mention at Creation Xena convention 2001, Best in show and best workmanship at Masque costume convention 2002.
